Shown below is an adapter plate I made from billet 7075 Aluminium alloy to mount a '72 V6 Ford Capri motor to a '90 Land Rover 5-speed transmisson and Range Rover tranfer case. This drivetrain is mounted in my 1963 Land Rover. The modern RR transfercase single stick operating lever was converted to old Land Rover style 2 lever operation. That took quite some time and prototypes to figure it all out but looking from the cabin interior it all looks like it's 1963.
I do all my designing and fabricating. If I don't have the skills, I study and train.
Project is ready for Tech Inspection to make it all road-legal. After that there's a lot of cosmetics on the car that requires some attention.
The plan is to drive this for one year to work out all snags. Next year, take the '72 2.6L Ford out and replace with a fuel injected '92 4.0L for some real torque. Should be a straight swap except for wiring and exhaust system.
